The common sea angel (Squatina squatina) is a species that is listed as "critically endangered" by IUCN and listed as a species on the OSPAR list. Present in various coastal sectors of the northeast Atlantic waters in the past, the species has now almost disappeared from most of them. Only rare incidental catches still bear witness to the presence of the species, with the exception of the Canary Islands where a population home remains. Knowing the historic habitat of this species is an important part of the proposed conservation strategy for the waters of the northeast Atlantic. It is in this context that a convention has been set up between the French Agency for Biodiversity (AFB) and the Association for the Study and Conservation of Selacians (APECS) in order to propose a six-month internship. ApoliMer provides methodological support in the social sciences. The role of the trainee will be to gather as much historical and ethnographic data as possible, including meeting sea users, and analyzing different sources and materials.
